I have been using the Nokia Siemens 2110 modem with my Netgear WGR614 v9 wireless router. I had configured it myself and everything was working absolutely fine for the last 2 years. But yesterday my internet suddenly went off when I woke up. Then I tried entering the router page at 192.168.1.1 which was working fine for all these years but it showed the message that the Netgear router had changed its router login IP to 10.0.0.1 as there was conflict with IP. I configured the router again in the 10.0.01 address from where I logged in and could get my internet working.
But then I wanted to check what was causing the conflict. So, I removed the router and directly connected my computer through LAN cable to the Nokia Siemens 2110 modem. I typed in 192.168.1.1 and saw that there was a login screen. I tried a few logins and it worked with admin/admin . So, it means that 192.168.1.1 is being taken up by my modem and I never knew that Nokia Siemens 2110 is a GUI modem till date and always thought of it being a basic modem. I do not want anything from the modem as I will configure everything through the Netgear router. So, is there any way to remove the 192.168.1.1 assigned to the modem so that it can be used by the router. Will setting up bridge mode work on the Nokia Siemens 2110 modem and will it remove the default IP assigned to it so that my router can use it.
Please help. I dont know how this problem suddenly take place after nearly two years.
I saw somewhere in the forum that I can configure bridge mode from Internet connection settings under Configuration section in the modem page. So, I am also attaching screenshots of the present Internet connection screens and two tabs.
